September Sponsor Spotlight

Even cooler than finally ending my quest for boots? My September sponsors! The ladies are here to tell you a little more about themselves and what they have to offer. Be sure to check out their shops and blogs--there's a ton of great stuff to see.

A Bird in the Hand Art - I'm Jenny and I have been crafting for most of my life. I love learning new techniques. I usually let the inspiration guide the technique rather than vice-versa. I have a background in biology, specifically animal behavior, and I have been inspired by the beauty of various bird species.  Now I spend my days covered in fabric and paint and loving every minute of it :)  Visit my shop for some one-of-a-kind accessories and home decor pieces.

Marilyn P Sushi - is a self-taught jewelry designer and mastermind behind Pulp Sushi. She is what happens when you cross a Retro Secretary with the Bride of Frankenstein. Creating jewelry pieces to help you express just a pinch of your playful, flirty, quirky side. You can find some of my  jewelry along with items from other great artist at  For your readers I would like to offer a 15% discount on their purchase at when they use the code FCOBLOG during checkout.

Shabby Apple
- Great dresses that make getting dressed simple. No worrying about flashing accidential skin or finding a coordinating cardi--Shabby dresses are designed to be a one-piece outfit. Easy! Plus, a portion of their sales benefit women in Asia and Africa. Cute clothes for a good cause? Yes, please.

GoatNotes - I'm Julia and my blog was started in October 2010 as a way to chronicle my adventures in motherhood as well as share updates about my Etsy shop, Emory & Olly. Over the past year my goals remain relatively the same with both ventures, however GoatNotes blog has shifted to focus more on intentional living, self sufficiency, celebrating all things handmade and has become a space of inspiration for myself and others.

Favor Creative
 - My name is Vicki and I own a handcrafted eco-friendly herb favors and event stationery shop dedicated to all things creative for life's special occasions. I am passionate about using all-natural and eco-friendly choices for event favors as well as my everyday life. My Herbs in a Box Favor was created using 100% biodegradable materials and packed and shipped with a conscious effort to reduce its impact on our earth.

Nic's Button Buds - Nicole creates stunning bouquets, boutonnieres, shoe clips, and brooches out of buttons. Each piece is carefully made by hand and is truly something to treasure for years to come. She also enjoys quilting, and has a selection of fun fabric postcards in her shop.

A huge thank you to all of my sponsors for being a part of Final Clothes-Out!
